Get Well Dude

 I love both the sentiment and digi I used on this  card and think they are great for a guy's get well card, not at all sentimental  but poking a little fun at the male sexes attitude to minor ailments. When working I found men were good patients when they were really unwell, but could feel really sorry for themselves when they were actually getting better.

We were at the School Awards ceremony last night where our son received the award for Modern Studies. For a long time he spoke about studying politics then journalism at uni, then rather sheepishly announced that he didn't think uni was for him a few months ago. He's struggling to decide what he wants to do.

Digi from Stitchy Bear Stamps
Sentiment from TLC

Challenges have had the digi for ages
